World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Coldingham Bay and Seacliff Beach. Get outdoors at Arthur's Seat and Calton Hill. Change things up with these side-trips from Edinburgh: Tantallon Castle (in North Berwick), The Parish Church of Saint Peter (in Chillingham) and The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (in Seahouses). And it doesn't end there: appreciate the extensive heritage of Edinburgh Old Town, explore the historical opulence of Bamburgh Castle, contemplate the long history of Cragside House and Gardens, and don't miss a visit to Real Mary King's Close.

For maps, other places to visit, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Edinburgh online attractions planner .

If you are flying in from Belgium, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In April, daytime highs in Edinburgh are 13°C, while nighttime lows are 3°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Mon) so you can travel back home.
